What a great way to choose your favorite Happy Hands fragrance!

How "Happy Hands" Happened

Maggie Belize originally formulated Happy Hands for herself, after she tried -- and failed! -- to find a commercial product that worked for her.

Up in the high mountain desert Sandia Park, New Mexico, dry hands are a year-round problem.
She needed a creamy lotion that would deeply moisturize & soften her hands, but absorb quickly and NOT leave a greasy residue that would transfer to her knitting. And of course, it had to smell wonderful!

It took Maggie a year to work out this formula: a lotion that is so very thick and creamy so you only need a small dollop, quickly absorbed, nourishing and moisturizing with NO greasy residue; and glossy pure white, because she didn't want to add any artificial colors to her products.

Once she got the exact formula & feel that she wanted, Maggie discovered that all her friends wanted Happy Hands, too ... So she decided to try it out in her Etsy store.

Why "Happy Hands" Work So Well

~ Goat’s milk is naturally high in protein, triglycerides, and loaded with absorbable Vitamins A, B6, B12 and E ... making it an excellent natural moisturizer that helps hydrate and nourish your skin.

~ Bee's honey has been used in skin products since ancient times, because it is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

~ Shea butter comes from the nut of the African karite tree, and is an extremely therapeutic emollient, helping to heal cracked and damaged skin.

You can find these listed in the "Happy Hands" section of Local Gringos store, or feel free to request any of these Happy Hands individually, in 8-oz, 4-oz and 2-oz sizes! I have the Rose Tea sent and love it:)

Oh my what a wonderful Etsy store. I love the graphics she uses and the scents of her lotions sound wonderful. The description of the Hippie chick and Tall Cotton sound very enticing.

ennadoolf said...

I love everything in her shop! But if you really want me to choose something, other than the Happy Hands Lotions, then I'd have to choose her lovely Note Cards - but please, don't make me choose just one! :) Okay, twist my arm - it's Knit Glamour Hollywood, of course!

My blog - http://r-anne-dom.blogspot.com - will be updated with a post about the giveaway!

Here is the feature I did of her on my blog: studentknitter.blogspot.com . Maggie is such a nice person on top of everything! :)

Sharon Rose said...

For me, I love the Knit Love mug... but my poor husband is always on the hunt for the perfect hand cream. His mitts get dried & cracked from constant washing at work. If I win those little samples will be tucked into his coat so he always has them handy. I have my fingers crossed ... thanks for the chance to win!
